I love Midway High School! The teachers are amazing, the administrators are phenomenal, and the campus itself is wonderful. In my time at MHS I’ve made relationships that will last a lifetime. The students really understand what it means to be good people and they represent the school with pride. On top of that, the atmosphere at the school is absolutely amazing! We love different activities and the student body always shows up to support their fellow classmates. Midway High School is an awesome school and I am so blessed to be a Panther!

They have many options for classes with a wide range of difficulty levels. The school is massive in footage and population, but there’s crammed hallways and full classrooms. They are frequently changing rules with dress codes, ID’s, schedules, etc., but they really want to make the best for their students safety and preference. All staff are friendly. Their website could use some assistance, as it is hard to navigate.
I personally discovered what I want to study in college while I was in high school at Midway, specifically through the Fashion Design classes. Midway makes sure all students are prepared to graduate, and given all the information needed to make it to and in college!
My experience at midway for the past four years has been great! The AP/Pre-AP teachers are very good overall and they most certainly will prepare you for the AP exam or a higher level course. Plus, midway has a lot of amazing, award winning clubs/activities from BPA to the fine arts that everyone should take a look at when deciding to put their child at midway. However, the counseling department could use some more work when it comes down to being active all 4yrs of high school in helping students be prepared for college admissions and the obstacles that can come with it. Midway does have a lot of career and technical education programs that are very good if your kid wants to go to vocational school and also certification programs for nursing and welding.
